This piece depicts the old Dairy Queen in Montvale, New Jersey.
After scarfing down many a butterfinger/oreo blizzard at this place, I got to know the owner who happens to be an avid collector of all things DQ. I love going into the back of this shop and looking through all his old photographs, showing how this place looked in the 1950's,60's and 70's. It's fascinating to see how this place has evolved over time, yet stayed pretty much the same. I know for a fact that this is the original sign from way back when. I don't think that the DQ colors have been blue and white for quite some time. This place is a classic, a landmark that everyone in Bergen County knows. Let's hope it stays there for many years (and blizzards) to come!
Thanks again for looking!
